It still feels like summer was just yesterday, but news flash: now, we’re just weeks away from the holidays and the new year. But don’t fret because there’s still time to grab some of the best last-minute gifts. (We’ve all been there.)
Consider this the procrastinator’s ultimate gift guide. Online retailers like Amazon and Sephora are filled with last-minute stocking stuffers, and unique gift ideas for everyone on your list: best friends, moms, dads, and teenagers included. Plus, they’ll arrive at your door before the festivities begin and definitely won’t come across as hasty, last-minute picks.
And, as you may have noticed, shipping delays happen. You should definitely put in your orders as soon as possible in order to ensure your holiday gifts arrive on time. In case you’re wondering just how soon you should start considering your virtual holiday shopping, December 14 is the last day to ship via FedEx Ground for a Christmas arrival date and December 8 is the cutoff date for FedEx Ground Economy. With that being said, each delivery service provider has different deadlines, so the sooner you order, the more likely your gift will arrive on time.
If you find yourself totally stuck, don’t fret, because we rounded up 25 beauty and lifestyle last-minute gift ideas — plus a few charitable options. These presents will keep your loved ones’ skin glowing, hair shiny and volumized, hands soft and moisturized, and makeup looking like a vision. Browse our picks from editor-favorite brands like Olaplex, Laneige, and La Mer to find the perfect match for everyone who’s still left on your shopping list.
